Elkonin boxes have been proven through research to provide needed opportunities for students to practice the phonemic awareness skill of segmenting phonemes. This skill is important in learning to read, spell and write. If students lack this skill in 3rd grade, they have a high probability falling behind in reading, writing, and spelling. Most curriculums don't provide this skill past 2nd grade, so it's imperative that students master this skill early.
This product includes 48 colorful pictures with Elkonin boxes below. The pictures are divided into 4 different "sets" to help teachers differentiate instruction. Also included are four student pages that show the 12 pictures and Elkonin boxes in that level. Students can work alone or with a partner. Directions are provided on how teachers can use this product for students at various developmental levels. What a useful resource!
